PC mayor gives final report

To Port Clinton Residents,
I would like to reflect on what has been accomplished this past year. But First I would like to recognize a couple of very special people. John Folger has served in city government since 2003 and has proven his dedication and commitment spending hours away from his family serving our community. John has been a great asset, serving on Planning and Development, Infrastructure, Finance, Parks and Rec’s, and Rules Laws and Ordinances committees. Thank you John. You will be missed.
